i'd be interested in hearing from anybody who saw this in edinburgh too. it's coming to The Lowry in Manchester (sorry Salford for those who take ofense at such things) and i'm not sure if i'm intrigued enough to pay good money on it without having heard some feedback.

This show started about 4 years ago in Melbourne as part of the Comedy Festival (I think) or was it the Midsuma Gay and Lesbian Festival? It was later redeveloped and its running time extended considerably before it toured around Australia last year. It's a pretty funny show but towards the end the joke starts to wear a little thin. There is a lot of footage from both the Australian and Edinburgh Festival seasons on "that site".

it's actually Greater Manchester, but there is often local controversy when people claim places are in Manchester when they are actually in Salford(which somehow is a separate city. hardly a week goes by without a letter in the local paper complaining about this.

haha. don't forget the 'quays' to the end of that title. you wouldn't believe the number of people we hear moaning about that to us in the box office lol.

I'm quite excited about this show coming to us actually. it looks like it's going to be good.

I saw this in Edinburgh and it was great. Very camp and silly but so on the nose. The chorography and music where frighteningly acurate! is that how you spell frighteningly? ha

Ryan Molloy from 'Jersey Boys', and Warren from 'Musicality', were in the show at the Fringe last August. Although it didn't start there, it's very much an Edinburgh Fringe type show, and would need to capture that special atmosphere for it to work as well elsewhere. It was great fun, with audience participation. As with 'Into the Hoods', it would need fleshing out for the West End, and this might be to its detriment.

there's also a special evening happening on the 24th at the lowry in salford quays, where the show is playing that week to co-incide with the actual contest happening that night, and it looks like its going to be alot of fun if there's any die hard fans.

I went on a few dates with the son of the guy that wrote this show.

Yes, I have actually nothing to add in this thread other then Julia Zemiro rocked in the original production and make sure you always support Liechtenstein!
